“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle.  I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.”  — Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

Fast from self-pity and complaining.

Pray for God’s help in handling something difficult in your life.

Give a kind word to someone who lacks confidence.

After Lent, tune in to BustedHalo.com every day for our Daily Jolts and MicroChallenges!

    Do you post the answers? I see winners but never see the answers.

    Realizing that I complain a lot – a Lenten reflection.

  • C Gunty

    This is one of my favorite quotes from Mother Teresa (although I have seen it in a few different forms, e.g. “God trusts us so much he will never give me more than I can handle. I just wish God wouldn’t trust me so much.”) But it is a great way of telling us — from the most humble/saintly, to the most ordinary, that “God has our back.”

    Sorry to the folks who’ve had trouble with CAPTCHA. It’s a tricky thing. If it’s too easy, then automated spamming tools can slip past it. If it’s too hard, then it frustrates people. Ours is honestly on the easy side. If you haven’t already tried this, close the window, open a totally new window and bring the page up again.

  • Samantha

    it didn’t work for me either, but if you refresh the entire page it should keep your info there and give you a new CAPTCHA code.

  • Barbara Clickner

    Same here…the CAPTCHA is not working

  • JMS

    It seems your CAPTCHA today is not working. I keep getting the samecode and cannot submit.
